There is 1 ball bering rolling around inside. Is that supposed to be loose?

This is new out the box. Haven't used it yet.
Asked by: Tyler
This machine can operate at up to around 25000 RPM! Thats pretty fast for any rotation equipment. Jet engines develop these speeds and more. No, you shouldn't have a loose bearing or anything else rattling around inside. If the loose part gets in the fan it could break all the fins off causing more loose parts and overheating, if the loose part lodges in the armature it would destroy the motor and would lock up or cause a short. Return it.

So when undermounted and using your own power switch are you able to leave the trigger lock on all the time?

Asked by: MickeyD
Short answer, Yes. I use mine with the Bosch Router Table which has a power strip controlled by a master switch. I plug the Router and my Shop Vac into the power strip with the Routers trigger lock on and then I can turn on both the Router and the Shop Vac with the Router Table Master Switch.

15 Amp 3-1/2 in. 2.3 HP Corded Electric Variable Speed Fixed Base Router Kit with Trigger Control is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good except for one issue I bought this tool because of its trigger control at the handle. It's a great feature for safety reasons. The unit has one design shortcoming, however, which is that they put power cord on the front of the machine along the cutting path. It would have been better to put it at 90 degrees if at all possible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performance exceeds my expectations, however, The routers' performance is exceptional and the powering up cycle is very smooth. However, the router that this new Bosch MRF23EVS replaced was faithful and used for twenty+ years, it just got old and the bearings gave up. The Bosch is everything that my old one was plus a little more power which I was looking for . So you will understand my surprise when setting up to run this new Bosch machine and found it DOES NOT HAVE AN AUTOMATIC SHAFT LOCK for installing router bits. After twenty years I didn't even think that all routers would not have that. I mean come on! Two wrenches needed to install a BIT??? When shopping I didn't even stop to consider current router technology would not have that, it should be a standard by now shouldn't it? I have faith that this Bosch will run as long as my old one but am very disappointed about the primitive bit installation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good power for 3 1/2 inch raised panel bit with back cutter in hardwood. Wish it had a lock-out ... Good power for 3 1/2 inch raised panel bit with back cutter in hardwood. Wish it had a lock-out for bit insertion, and a opening cover to aid dust collection. Much more power than the sister 2.25 hp Bosch 1617EVS 12 amp version. Reviews that say these two routers have comparable power at low speeds are VERY WRONG!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All The Features I Wanted I spent hours looking for everything I wanted in a router. Had to have LED lights for my older eyes, clear base for visibility, good horse power, accuracy, nice grips, and thumb on/off was a must for safety and for not messing up a project. This Bosch model fit all my requirements. All these features make my work much easier. I couldn't be more please with this router.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Exterior well built but what matters is a fail. When I opened the box this came in everything looked great. Well packaged, everything there in its place and all the parts there. Plugged it in and love the soft start but it wasn't quite as smooth as my Dewalt. Ran the router through the RPM RANGE 1 through 5 and was very disappointed when the motor developed a severe vibration on the number 4 speed range and the smoothed out a bit at the high range 5. I could site a couple reasons why it would do this since I am a certified Vibration Analyst but suffice it to say the engineering behind this machine was lacking. I've read another review similar to this with the same complaint. Disappointed in Bosch. I ended up buying a Triton. Guess what? No vibration...

(Speed ranges from 1 to 5) . The design of the router is very good and I would like one like this but the vibration is unacceptable for quality work and long life of the router. After I brought it back to the store, and Home Depot was very very good about it, I read some reviews that also mentioned the vibration so I know it is a problem Bosch has not dealt with.
